The people from Cinetel are not speaking Spanish. They are Basques so they are dubbing the films into Castillion. This is considered 'Peasant French' or 'common' as it is neither French nor Spanish. These folks are obsessed with anything American.

Each time they claimed a copyright I disputed it immediately and have always prevailed. They own THEIR version of the film, not the American version. They claim they have bought the copyrights on 700 films in the United States Public Domain. The copyrights on Public Domain films are not for sale. Now if I had uploaded a version of let's say 'The Stranger' and had it dubbed into Castillion then they could make a valid claim.

I have provided YouTube with a lengthy list of 'Claimants' but they do nothing! Israeli Educational Television is claiming Henry the VIIIth with Charles Laughton. How can we dispute it if we do not share a language? If they are able to read and write in the English Language they did not release their claim. I do not speak Hebrew so I just gave up and yanked the film.

This is a real disaster with YouTube. They do not care, I am doing some digging like getting FOIAS on the Officers of the Company. That will provide names and valid contact info.

What used to be a really fun thing to do has turned stressful and ugly.

I had Israeli Educational Television lodge a copyright claim against an item in my YouTube channel - a 1963 US-produced program called "The Funny Company".

Some three months later, I get a notice from YouTube telling me that the claim has been released...

They read English and the problem with both Cinetel and Israeli Educational Television is that they have failed to rename their version of the film in their language of their respective Countries. I find that they are starting to catch on. Israeli Educational Television claims Henry the VIIth with Charles Laughton. If you explain to them nicely that they should rename their films in the content ID system they release the claim immediately. YouTube is no help. They have zero customer service and they could not care less about any of this.

Key is we have to educate these folks. The music claims are more difficult. Between Orchard and GODigital life is generally miserable.

Good luck!
